I saw this in the paper! Apparently it costs like $1500. To starve? I could do that for free.

This is just awful. The NY Times did a piece this weekend called “The Bridal Hunger Games” on this very tube diet – http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/15/fashion/weddings/Losing-Weight-in-Time-for-the-Wedding.html?_r=1&pagewanted=all
Ew! This just shows the kind of weight-related pressure women, especially soon to be brides, feel and the lengths and $$ they are willing to go to and spend. The worst part about the NYT article is that it’s reported without any outrage, i.e. as if this pressure to be thin is normal and acceptable. Ugh.

This is the most horrifying thing I’ve seen all day and is really making me question the value of humanity as a whole.

I saw that yesterday! That is truly crazy. I started Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred and changed my diet to mostly raw food (fruits, veggies, salads) and the occasional smart one and I am already seeing results. It’s so much more enjoyable when you work hard for what you want!

To be fair, fad diets are always a bad idea. But yes, this one is extra gross.

Yeah – this is just awful and gross.

Ugh, that’s crazy. I dropped ten pounds (124–>114) doing the low-carb thing. I’m still working on a couple extra.. if it comes off great, if not, whatever. I just want my tummy a little tighter. I can’t imagine eating through a feeding tube to lose weight though!
